    I just bought a dvd player this past weekend. I bought the pioneer DV-250. Every time I play a dvd the color fades in and out. From normal to red. What's the problem?

    Run the DVD through the TV's -- NOT the VCR's - A/V jacks: yellow, white, and red. If your TV doesn't have these, then you need a new TV. I don't think an RF modulator would work with a TV/VCR combo.

    Is there a way for you to hook it the same way on another TV to rule out the DVD player?

    To clarify: Macrovision is a nifty little thing that is designed to prevent one from taping from one VCR to antoher, or from a DVD player to a VCR. The bottom line is that it's designed to keep you from renting movies and making copies of them. What ends up happening is that whenever you feed a DVD player through a VCR, even a TV/VCR combo unit, it messes up the picture as you described.

    A VCR and a DVD player MUST be sent to your TV through two different inputs, and as most TV/VCR compbo units have only one set of inputs, it's likely that you have no solution to your problem other than buying a new TV.

    On my setup, i can run the Dvd-through the VCR, but it would fade in and out ONLY when the VCR in record mode (only with macrovision enable disc), otherwise everything is fine.
